So I was rounding on my post-op patient yesterday. I was slightly frazzled, as school had been delayed, so I was dragging my youngest with me.

I'm in jeans with paint stains, a turtleneck, and a sweater (it's cold here in BFE!), with only lip gloss on. And she says "You always look so pretty."

Made my day.  :)

The patient said it, not the boy. He was goofing off and charming all of the nurses on med-surg.

Post op? Those drugs are great, aren't they? Tricia

ER's Mom said...

Tricia, I'd say yes, but she's like that in the office too. I think she's blind. ;)

Actually, she's just a super nice gal.

Sometimes it may happen. Individual perceptions varies from each other. Patients feel nervous in front of the doctor so that sometimes they are not able to speak their problem frankly. In your case, The patient may be mentally sick.
